    My new Aviator, hot from a dealer in Warzawa. A nice chunky piece of metal, and I love the brushed case.

    Came on a black crocodile, but they included this more aviation-minded strap. So a quick change. Then noticed the buckle on the stock strap's got an "Aviator" stamped into it. So a mere moment's work (took me 30 minutes and lots of swearing) and the collar, cuffs and buckle matched perfectly.

    Sits in me new watch box next to my Raketa. Oh, and it's looking good on the Sputnik front.

    Happy days.

    Ric

    Very nice watch, Ric, congratulations! I like Sturmanskie Aviators. Every model is good. Your is very different from the others, has easily recognizable design.


    In November I was in airport and very hurry, as usual. Suddenly I saw this Aviator on sale for a very good price. No hesitation, immediately bought and forward to the plane. It take seconds. Finally at home I opened the package - it was one of the biggest disappointments I ever had with watches - I bought from this watch the 12h version! My fault. This Aviator has a very special look and design, but I didn't even know that actually they have two versions of the watch.


    ... After this misfortune inbetween I got one another Aviator, but I still haven't got THIS watch you have :)

    You see, this is why I like this passion we share.

    Behind every watch there's a story, even if in this case you did make a small mistake. But don't tell me that the 12 hour Aviator's the worst watch you own, because we won't believe you. So I'd advise you to spoil yourself this Christmas, and buy yourself that 24 hour version, and then you'll have two beautiful watches.

    And the world'll be a slightly nicer place.

    Yeah, I like the cleanliness of the dial.

    What are the nuke associations? Also is that a GMT hand I see there, or a pointy seconds hand?

    hi there
    It's a military watch made by Hamilton(MIL-W-46374D)-there is no extra hand for GMT.
    "the nuke""-radiation symbol to the dial, indicating that the luminous markers were radioactive(scary staff!) H3 for tritium.
    cheers
